Re: Anybody use an annometer to measure windspeed?
by Peter at 2011-02-05 19:07:48 (Forum::Public::Wind)
As it happens I have been using an APRS anemometer & data logger for the past few years. They work extremely well. I have literally today just upgraded to the latest model as the version I had wasn't able to operate with the XBee potted modem (which APRS also supply to allow the logger to wirelessly communicate directly with a PC some distance away). Up to now I haven't bothered with this as the APRS anyway writes daily files to an SD card in the logger and you can then download these manually to your PC from time to time.

However, a few months ago I got some s/w which allows me to view the outputs from my Bergey Xantrex inverter in real time, so I thought it would be useful/nice to be able to log the anemometer in real time too.

As a result, I had to upgrade, but have the old spare APRS logger unit & SD card available, if you are interested? You would need to supply your own anemometer (& temperature gauge etc. if you wish to log this or other info too), your own power supply and a waterproof box (assuming itís mounted outside?)

Let me know if you are interested & we can discuss. If you send me your email address I can supply photos. The unit is working perfectly but I guess will be out of warranty. I should have the manual somewhere.

p.s. if you check my blog under the 'Green Blogs' on this site, you will find I wrote a piece about the logger a while ago.
